MSNBC Senior Political Analyst Mark Halperin said his network should stop paying him, because he has no idea what’s going on with President Donald Trump and congressional Democrats.

“NBC shouldn’t pay me today because I have no idea what this means and what this is about,” Halperin said on “Morning Joe,” Thursday. “It’s one of the strangest things I’ve seen in not just in Donald Trump’s time but for any president.”

Trump has teamed up with Democrats to raise the debt ceiling and provide Harvey relief, setting off speculation as to how he will handle any DACA legislation going forward.

“I’m not sure politically or substantively come January the president is going to be in a particularly strong position,” he added.

Co-Host Mika Brzezinski agreed with Halperin that she also didn’t know what to think, while co-host Joe Scarborough broke it down for both of them, detailing how this could benefit Trump.

“First of all they can pay me double because yesterday I said that Trump was going to work with Democrats,” Scarborough said. “And by the way if the cost of Donald Trump getting the debt ceiling taken care of in December is having a press conference with 350 legislators standing behind him for DACA, and do for dreamers what Barack Obama was unable to do and pass a law and have him sign that law, then Donald Trump will take that deal,” he said.

Scarborough remained skeptical, however, of Trump’s current views on DACA and said Trump would most likely watch “Fox and Friends” and quickly change his mind.

“I’m sure he’ll watch ‘Fox and Friends’ this morning and tweet, and destroy any gains that he made yesterday afternoon,” Scarborough said.
